A Missouri bar owner placed Marshawn Lynch and Colin Kaepernick jerseys side-by-side as a doormat. No big deal right? Well if you can’t see the hidden meaning, let me spell it out for you “Lynch Kaepernick”.
Customer Taylor Sloan snapped a photo of the bar’s doormat and uploaded it to Facebook with the caption:
“Pretty obvious the lack of professionalism at this bar, You lost my business the moment you decided to showcase this kind of behavior…There’s a reason why the NAACP issued a travel warning for Missouri.”
The bar owner had a few words to say which created a domino effect in Sloan’s comments.
Since the picture began making the rounds, SNAFU’s “doormat” has been switched around to say “Kaepernick Lynch.” However, Sloan said that there is still a bigger issue not being addressed.
“This is bigger than me or him, it’s about racism so systemic that some don’t even acknowledge it happening, or disguising it as patriotism, which in their mind is absolute,” she said.
Do you find the initial doormat offensive?
